    this little one is about 5 weeks old, I know that’s early to tell gender usually but I thought I heard you can tell leghorns by about 4 weeks. Also it’s looking to be a rose comb? 68FA3E41-7051-45D9-A049-914985125217.jpeg B9851F5A-7F87-4FA1-A049-74F590CEA7E1.jpeg 1B2FCC7F-AF9E-4F85-8783-D1D025F31967.jpeg 02C00488-475B-4255-8BDB-300D9CCCF4AC.jpeg The redness has me worried but there is very little actual comb development. Thanks!

    is the comb normally that flushed? or is that from being upset and being handled?

    It looks more flushed in the pictures than in real life. But it is very slightly pink.

    At this point, pullet. Rose combs tend to be difficult to judge.
